While the national BSA formally maintains its hard-line stance forbidding "avowed homosexuals" from being members or leaders, I'd heard that some packs, troops, and councils were practicing their own version of "DADT." Sadly, here in Western Loudoun, that doesn't seem to be the case. According to a leader in the local pack: "Pack 961 adheres to all National BSA policies." Message received.
As an Eagle Scout and a Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow, it is my personal opinion that the National BSA's policies and practices are in direct conflict with the principles that should underpin any decision in scouting--the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
